Wild Other : A Memoir by Clover Stroud
'There is so much richly evoked life here...beautifully written.' Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Times 'Beautifully written...I love this book.' India Knight 'Compelling and candid, deftly weaving together past and present...a heart-wrenching story told in haunting, lyrical prose.' Tatler 'An uplifting and achingly honest personal story about loss, trauma and grief.' Woman & Home Clover Stroud's idyllic childhood in rural England was shattered when a horrific riding accident left her mother permanently brain-damaged. Just sixteen, she embarked on a journey to find the sense of home that had been so savagely broken. Travelling from gypsy camps in Ireland, to the rodeos of west Texas and then to Russia's war-torn Caucasus, Clover eventually found her way back to England's lyrical Vale of the White Horse.
The Wild Other is a grippingly honest account of love, loss, family and the healing strength of nature. Powerful and deeply emotional, this is the story of an extraordinary life lived at its fullest.
